Yes it’s been pimped before.  So why have we retraced the steps of other pimpers? 
Because the custard cream is a very special biscuit. 
And this is a very special pimp. 
It’s a super pimp.  A super-pimped giant custard cream, a Bastard Cream.

We have improved the lettering on the Bastard Cream by making a special pastry (mixture 2) designed to hold its shape after cooking so avoiding unsightly “spreading” of the lettering during cooking.  Mixture 1 makes a super-yummy, yellow, custard flavoured, melt-in-the mouth biscuit to build the sandwich of the Bastard Cream.  The cream of the Bastard Cream is made in mixture 3, smooth, vanilla, buttery and utterly yummy.

Mixture 1 The Bastard Cream Biscuit
250g margarine
100 g plain flour
50g caster sugar
50g custard powder
Few drops vanilla
Cream the sugar and margarine
Fold in flour, custard powder and vanilla to form  a dough
Leave to rest in the fridge for at least 1hr

Mixture 2 The Bastard Cream Letters
100g flour
75g butter
75g caster sugar
1 small egg, beaten
Few drops of vanilla
Pinch of salt
